edelivDelivery company DPD is expanding its logistic services with ParcelLetter service. With this new service, it will be able to deliver small packages, letters and other shipped materials into the mailbox, states Dutch logistic news site logisitiek.nl.

Deliveries in the new service do not, like other DPD-delivery services, require an autograph. Consumers can benefit from the DPD track-and-trace system to follow their sending via the standard Predict service DPD offers. With this service, DPD aims at sendings that do not necessarily require a deliverer to ring at the receiver's door. Eric Dietz, CEO at DPD Netherlands, states: "ParcelLetter is an expansion of our service. With current growth rates in e-commerce, our customers felt the need for a service that delivers small packages for a good price rate to their customers. ParcelLetter is our answer for this." The service aims, for this moment, on the small business and consumer market.

For now, ParcelLetter will be a pilot in the Netherlands. In short notice, DPD will offer the service to other European countries as well.

You can find ParcelLetter on shipping platform www.pakkettenversturen.nl
